Snipperclips is now a launch title and Europe is getting a limited joy-con and game download bundle (Red-L / Blue-R) (opposite of Neon console)

*Sorry guys, Argos have lots of (digital only?) games listed at £59.99 so it seems this is just a placeholder price for the digital game only.
My bad

FYI - the joy-con bundle is set to come out on March 10

this is waaaaayyyy more than it should be. i voted hot by mistake because i saw the joycons and thought it was a deal for them. my bad.

its supposed to be around £20 digital I believe

edit: it's actually £17.99 release day . link - gonintendo.com/sto…und

Yeah this is priced incorrectly considering it's going to be 19.99 euros as a digital version which should roughly translate to £19.99 on release in UK.

This maybe the physical joy-con deal with the digital download, which would be a great price for a second set! Inconclusive but may take the bait and return if doesn't come through!

The way that I read this is that the retail version includes both a download code for the game AND a set of Joy-Con - which would make this very keenly priced (and I'd expect the price to be updated/corrected once retailer process the details of this annoucement).

There is no physical release of this game digital only

As much as I would love this to be the limited edition with joy-cons, there is no mention of them. This would be a great deal if it does include the joy-cons though

Absolutely no mention of joycons being included anywhere on the page.

I guess it did originally and they fixed it otherwise I'm confused how anybody could infer they were included.

Yep. Bit odd!

This is the joycon + snipperclips bundle definitely. Not a terrible price for that to be fair.

I'd assume the opposite - with the Joy-Con bundles having only just been announced, this will be their original listing for the physical release of the game, which will presumably need to be updated to reflect that it includes the Joy-Con (and may include a revision of the price).

If it is this price then they don't have much chance of selling any joycon sets for £74.99, seems pretty counter-intuitive

I apologise I heard about the joy-con bundle and remembered seeing the high price of the Argos listing, so put 2 and 2 together and made 5!

I agree that the price screams placeholder. No idea whether it's intended to include joycons or not would only be guessing

is it worth pre-ordering this just in case? snipperclips has no physical release APART FROM a download code as part of the joycon bundle, so this listing must be for the joycon bundle, no?

That's what I thought. But Argos have lots of other digital only games listed, all at £59.99, so I'm thinking perhaps they're all getting the 'download code in a physical case' release treatment ?
That's all I can think of

No mention of price yet, but 59.99 with joy cons would be good
